I once again CANT link directly to the video, there is an arrow on the tweet to "copy link to tweet"


but i cant figure out how to get the video here ...Anyway this comment by him makes perfect sense to me, and now that I think about it I am wondering why more of us white folks dont say this. WE are ALL guilty of being recipients of white privilege and until WE all do something to stop it, we are part of it. I wish that wasnt true because I live and die in my heart about this stuff, but so far I have not done much about it.

That story of his sounds made up to cover his ass, either way it is a good point.

Still dont know how to link a video from Twitter directly to here.

No, they did not. If they had, they would have shot him. Likely in the back.

A few weeks ago I was hit head on while driving my KIA by a women about 50 driving a 1998 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton pick up who was driving on the wrong side of the road. No injuries but my car was totaled. With me was my wife age 57 and our 3 year old grandson.

A first responder happened to be driving by on his way to work and stopped. Without going into details he treated me like crap and was very rude and disrespectful. Until he found out that it wasn't me driving the Dodge Pick Up. Then the State Trooper showed up and while he wasn't as rude as the first responder he too treated me as the cause and not the victim of the accident at first.

Both the trooper and first responder were white men who when looking at a 2014 Kia involved in an accident with a 3/4 ton Dodge and saw two women in their 50's along with a 3 year old and then saw a 60 year old truck driver, who looks like a 60 year old truck driver. They automatically knew the 60 year old had to have been the one driving the pick up that caused the accident.

First responders and police really need to be trained better.

What's this got to do with police treatment of African Americans?

Believe it or not while this was happening I thought about you and wondered how much worse I would have been treated if I were African American. It shows that police and first responders have preconceived notions about everybody and every situation and there is no denying it is much worse for minorities.

The women who hit me was either on the phone or nodded off from drugs. [ my wife thinks it was drugs] She gave a false report to the police claiming her steering went out. [ her husband showed up and drove the truck home] She then claimed she was injured [ no way she was as her truck barely got a scratch and she was doing maybe 5mph at impact] and went to the hospital before the cop issued her a citation.

Now had she been Black or even worse a Black Male I am pretty sure the cop wouldn't have been as accommodating. As he didn't even search her vehicle for contraband and when I pointed out to him her lie about steering he just rolled his eyes as if to say WTF.

So to make a long answer even longer, this incident IMO shows how the police treat 50 year old white women differently than Black women or men who have caused what could have been a serious accident.

Seek help. Although, on second thought, in my humble clinical opinion, it's already way, way, too fucking late for you.

What a shame you don't have the ability to discuss any topic on any level.

In all seriousness have you been tested for dementia? They have drugs out now that while they can't get back what you've already lost they can slow down the progress of the disease to the point that old age will get you before dementia.

No flags on my property however my 2003 Chevy pick up does have an NRA sticker in the back window that was there when I bought it.

Here's the thing con, I would take a liberal with dementia over you.

Ike of course is not one, but if he was he would still be more valuable and honest than you.

You know the reasons why there is a state of racial inequity and police violence against nonwhites, particalarly African Americans, right?

You're aware of what community made police brutality a matter of public policy and laws, no?

You know who benefits and is intended to benefit from this state of things, correct?

Do you know whose taxes pay -- I mean, like, cashmoney -- pays for it?

Not interested in making light of any of this, from anyone. My wife is caring for her mother with Alzheimers. No, while the drugs help, the reality is, they don't slow it very much. She's taking them, and her disease is progressing quite rapidly.

And your own mother has dementia. You shouldn't be joking about this either.

You know, glen, if Carmen had said exactly what you said about police treatment, you would have called her a white-hating racist.

I don't think so, maybe three or so years ago. But, today we have learned that those stories are for the most part true.

I am not joking Ike's behavior is much like my mother's was in her early stages. When she was in total denile [ she still is] and they didn't have the drugs as they have now. Even now the drugs have helped her a lot and over the last couple years she has stayed about the same. Of course thankfully she has dementia and not Alzheimers which makes a huge difference. Had they had those drugs 15-20 years ago she would have been way better off.

Ike going after you means he has dementia? You claim you're not joking, but we all know you're just being an utter dick head.

African Americans have been talking about these conditions for the past 400 years, formally in publications since at least the mid-1800s.

It would be one thing if it were only African Americans that had to deal with these same issues. We're no more believed now than then. Every time we protest it, you guys start talking about running us over, lynching, communismsocialism, how it's hateful and oppressive of "whites," and other 400-year-old propaganda.

Conservative whites target everyone with punitive, hateful laws and policies.

Who do you think pays for it? I mean $$$ payment, not life and limb.
